How to Design Your Home for a Showing

Whether you are working independently or with a selling agent, there are many steps that you must follow when putting your home on the market. Thankfully in Miami, the real estate market is booming, and the market is optimal for both buyers and sellers. If you have been contemplating selling your home, this current market is offering a great opportunity for you to resell your home and net positive in profits.

One of the most crucial aspects of selling your home for the right price is by showing the property. If you don’t put in the effort to style your home and get professional photographs taken, you are less likely to see immediate interest in your residence. In this article, we will discuss the simple ways that you can design your home for a showing.

1. Clean From the Outside In

Put yourself in the position of the buyer. If you drive by a “for sale” sign for a house that looks dirty and rugged, are you going to spend time venturing indoors? The answer is likely no. Make sure that your house looks appealing on the outside. Mow the lawn, clear the brush, and make sure the windows all look sparkly clean. In some instances, the indoor and outdoor space will need a fresh layer of paint. It is important that the indoor space is clean as well. Removing clutter and wiping the counters can sharpen up space exponentially.

2. Make The Space Look Clean, But Inviting

If you are looking for a house, you want to ensure that it is a place that you can eventually call home. If every room looks overly clean and sterile, people will have a hard time imagining themselves living there. On the flip side, if your home is full of excess decor and clutter, people will have a hard time imagining their own style in the space. When cleaning and arranging your space, you must ensure that you find a balance between cleanliness and comfortability. If your furniture is out of date, try purchasing a few new pieces of casual dining room furniture that help buyers to imagine themselves in the space.

3. Spark Creativity and Interest

Leave some unique aspects of the home to be explored. In general, most walls and furniture pieces should be neutral. Use your space creatively so that people become intrigued by the various ways they could use the space. For example, try converting a spare bedroom into a gym. If you do not have a spare room, consider converting a corner of the master bedroom into a workspace. These creative and unique ideas will spark a piqued interest in the eyes of the buyer.

4. Produce Simple Yet Flavorful Scents

Make sure your home smells pleasant when guests arrive. Nobody wants to smell your dog or the dinner that you cooked last night. Insert candles and air fresheners throughout the space so that a pleasant aroma fills each room.


Showing your house can be a stressful experience. Since people come to see your home at random times throughout the day, you must ensure that your space can remain clean and comfortable. By arranging your furniture, cleaning thoroughly, and sparking creative ideas, you can ensure that your house sells quickly at an admirable rate.
